in the campaign which is mitt romney lying in the sand in a gigantic heart in which he's written "i love ann." >> very sweet. >> he was a missionary for the mormons here, i think in france when he did this. very sweet, very touching. they've done this quite deliberately. they want people, charles blow, to think that mitt romney is not a heartless, ruthless man, he's a lovable guy who loves his wife and paints big pictures in the sand for her. >> listen, i'm not going to knock a man for loving his wife. good for him and good for ann, and i applaud the fact that they have been married and they seem to have a very nice relationship. but to go back to the last point, if mitt romney was running on his economic record that he could turn things around, he has not demonstrated that he can do that. he has not sold the american people on that. >> is the debate, i come back to this again, the first debate, this is mitt romney's chance. to me, he's got to beat his chest, go out there and take obama down. >> he has to get into a back lift. it has to be dramatic. i don't believe it's something he can do.

plouff. mitt romney is counting on his secret weapon, ann, out on the trail. >> this country is ready for a turnaround. this country is ready -- this country is ready for mitt romney. >> joining me now, a man who knows quite a lot about mitt romney's debate preparation, his senior advisor, former senator jim tallent. welcome to you. >> good to be with you, piers. >> how is he getting on, the candidate? because this is potentially a make or break debate for mitt romney. >> yeah, it certainly is a big debate and a big debate for the country. well, he's worked hard. the president is a good debater and he's been in this -- on this spotlight before, so you know, governor romney is probably a little bit the underdog but i think he's going to be ready. he's going to be ready on the issues which is really what this election's about. >> there's a massive game at the moment of both sides downplaying expectation. so far, even if mitt romney just makes the stage, you guys could declare a triumph and a glorious victory. it's getting a bit ridiculous. the truth is mitt romney spent most of the firs
